The second volume describes the results of work conducted on liquid sewage sludge and septic tank pumpings into solid waste at a sanitary landfill. Pilot plant lysimeters were used to investigate the effects of sewage and septic tank sludges on solid waste temperature, decomposition, leachate, settlement, insects, gases, and odors. Three large field lysimeters were monitored for leachate, temperature, gas, compaction, settlement, and waste decomposition (as determined by core sampling). The full-scale disposal of sludge was monitored for runoff, leachate, equipment operating efficiency (time and motion studies), odors, vectors, blowing litter, and weather conditions (rainfall, temperature, wind, and evaporation).
